Tree Benefits Calculator

Palm Beach County UF / IFAS Extension hosted an International Society of Arboriculture Tree Preservation workshop on Friday March 25, 2011.  One topic presented to attendees was the National Tree Benefit Calculator, which was conceived and developed by Casey Trees and Davey Tree Expert Co.   This tool is a valuable resource that can be used to apply a monetary and environmental value to individual trees.  The user inputs location, land use, species, and size of tree.  Specific data provided includes air quality benefits, atmospheric carbon reduction, volume of storm-water interception,  and energy conserved.   This tool may be especially helpful in communicating the value of tree to your clients and other parties involved in landscape and development projects.

The National Tree Benefits Calculator may benefit horticultural professionals and is free to use.
